This was done for my Computer Illustration class. We had to illustrate a book cover. Obviously I chose my favorite book, Children of Dune. I used some screencaps of James McAvoy in the miniseries for photo reference of Leto II. Even though in the actual book Leto is much younger than the miniseries depiction, I always kind of liked the older portrayal of him (mostly because James McAvoy really did an excellent job and managed to play Leto exactly how I imagined him despite the age difference).

All things Dune copyright Frank Herbert of course. The summary/reviews on the back are taken from my copy of the book (the Ace paperback, which I think is the only version they sell anymore).

Corel Painter 9 (artists oils and oil pastel) for most of this...text and black text bar done in Photoshop CS2.

I was looking for book covers for my favorite books. I had received a kindle for a gift and wanted the best for book covers.

Found your wonderful adaptation of Children of Dune.

You are the reason I joined this site.

Completely incredible.


I am a HUGE fan of any of Herbert's work (father and son)

I can't really see your avatar. Can you send me the pic please?

Have you any art on They have an incredible amount of really amazing art.

Thanks for your beautiful book cover. Every time I read this book, look through my menu I will think of you and your wealth of talent.

I design jewelry but I wish I had your talent.

draconis89awesome. I also liked James' portrayal of Leto even with the age difference. I really like how you captured his face and the backround is very dune. I love the books and this cover would have made me want to buy it (if I didnt have it already)
